Tulsa’s Race Against Racism

Highlighting the people who are doing the difficult work of racial reconciliation and writing “Our chapter” of healing to the story of Tulsa’s 1921 race massacre.

TWO GOALS FOR RECONCILIATION

This celebration has a two-fold purpose:
  1. To highlight, applaud, and inspire the people who are doing the difficult work of racial reconciliation, and social justice, to keep going.
  2. To write “our chapter”, the chapter of healing to the story of Tulsa’s Race Massacre of 1921. We pay respects to our history and honor the lives that were lost during the massacre that destroyed the most affluent African American community in the United States due to racism.

OUR ANNUAL 5K "RACE AGAINST RACISM"

Tulsa Race For Reconciliation Celebration

We host our annual 5k, “The Race Against Racism” or nick-named “The Skunk Run” along with our “Jr. Skunk Olympics” for the kids which consist of tug-o-war, soccer, and 20-yard dash. We have guest speakers and a local historian who gives the history of the 1921 Race Massacre, and the speaks to the resilience of the Greenwood Community. The Tulsa Police Department speaks on their efforts to heal Tulsa through community policing. Also in attendance are multiple agencies and organizations who are passionate about racial reconciliation in our city. These organizations give out information on how you can get involved in this important and great work!

The most important piece in this event is YOU, the community! Join us for Tulsa’s unifying fun run to heal the racial divides in our city! By jogging this historic path together, we are symbolically stomping out racism with every step! Be a part of making #OneTulsa a reality!

A LASTING JOURNEY

#racismstinks is maturing and coming to understand that our role in the efforts to eradicate racism out of the systems and institutions that are supposed to make our country great for all people is not one of “follow us as we lead,” but “join hands with us as we all cross this uncharted road.”

We plan on expanding our reach to other highly affected areas of the country with hands-on involvement.
